Latest Update Robinson Cano (leg) is in the Mariners starting lineup on Saturday. Sat Aug, 16, 03:31 PM
Has one of the best left-handed swings in the game, with tremendously quick hands. Eats fastballs alive and mauls right-handed pitching. Boasts a good arm and sound glove.
Flaws: : Doesn't walk enough for an elite batter. Doesn't run very well on the base-paths. Also, he isn't really able to carry teams and needs help around him to be most effective.
Cano left Friday night's contest after fouling a ball off his right instep. The injury was obviously minor and pulling him from the game was simply precautionary.Analyst: Ivar G. Anderson
Although Cano had a solid game on Friday night, he was forced out early after taking a foul ball off the inside part of his front foot in his batting stance. The Mariners expect him to be in the starting lineup on Saturday, which indicates the injury is not serious, so fantasy owners breath sigh of relief. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Cano was removed from the game in the inning after a running out a ground ball in the seventh inning aggravated an early incident in which he fouled a ball off of his right foot. This does not appear to be anything serious, so consider him day-to-day moving forward. Analyst: Matthew Beck
While this was actually his second home run in five games, every fantasy owner's fear came true with Cano's move to Seattle this year. Sure, he's batting .333 on the year, but his 10 home runs and 66 RBI have him on-pace for a career-worst 13 home runs and the lowest RBI total since 2009. He has dropped fairly significantly in the positional rankings this year and will not be a first-round choice in drafts next year. He's still solid, but you're no longer going to need to pay a premium price.Analyst: Howard Bender
